…. “that branch of Como Lake”, which is so beautifully described by Alessandro Manzoni in the novel par excellence of Italian literature: “I promessi sposi”, is the Lake of Lecco, which would be the eastern branch of the lake Como, source of inspiration for one of the best known novels in the world, the tormented love story between the young Renzo and Lucia.
